MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna Sunday 8 September 2019
A preacher once said, “Look at that beautiful butterfly and learn from it to trust in God. One might wonder where it could live in tempestuous nights, in the whirlwind, or in the stormy day; but I have noticed it is safe and dry under the broad leaf while rivers have been flooded and the mountain oaks torn up from their roots.” Yes, God will always take care of His own. He takes care of the simple butterfly, keeping it safe from the storm. He will surely take care of you.
Our passage brings to the fore the message that David gave to the Israelites about the faithfulness of God and His ability to take care of His children. He experienced divine protection first hand and in such dramatic fashions that neither Goliath nor King Saul could kill Him despite their numerous attempts to do so.
Today: DCLM Daily Manna Sunday 8 September 2019 by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi
This song of praise was composed after the ark of the Lord had been brought to Jerusalem. The death of Uzzah at the botched attempt notwithstanding, David was genuinely grateful and he wanted the nation to recognise the goodness of the Lord and His overarching grace.
It took forty years for Israel to journey from Egypt to Canaan. Without a standing army, God made them to overcome every enemy that came their way. They needed food and water all through the journey and the Lord supplied every day, everywhere. Just like He protected Israel of old from their enemies in the wilderness, so will the Lord protect all those who put their trust in Him.
Walking in an atmosphere of praise will make you to appreciate God’s goodness and provisions for your needs today. Our God is on the throne and His inexhaustible resources are ever available for you. Grow in this confidence and join the millions to declare “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel forever and ever…” (1 Chronicles 16:36).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s watchmen never sleep so you can rest.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 105-106
